Arrived at PS HQ around 11am. They break up the interview into 4 portions. HR interview, HR presentation, facility tour, sim evaluation. I did the HR interview first and questions that were asked were pretty standard.  Then a scenario where the PIC is flying an approach what sorts of things as the FO am I looking for? If he goes below the MDA what do you do? What if after you let him know to go missed he continues even further? What do you do? They concluded the HR interview by allowing me to ask questions of which I had a few. HR interview was probably where I preformed best. You have to remember that at PS you're the point of contact for all customers. They really want to see what you'll be a good... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Oct 26, 2023 Applied on the PlaneSense website; it took about a month for the HR to contact me by phone. Technical interview was relatively fast paced, done on Teams, taking about 30 minutes to complete. All technical material is emailed to you beforehand, so definitely take time to familiarize yourself – there is way too much stuff to go through during 30 minutes, so they will pick a few from the packet (I got STAR, descend via, few different IAP and plenty of questions about the charts)....

  2. Oct 26, 2023 Interview was very straightforward. First is a microsoft teams technical interview, make sure you study jep charts for this portion as it is basically all instrument questions. After this, about a week later I was contacted about when the company would be nearby to conduct an in person interview and got that scheduled. First portion of the in person interview was a 30 minute presentation about the company and what life is like as a pilot. Shared pilot documents during this phase. Next was...

  3. Oct 23, 2023 Showed up to the place of interview in the morning. Started with the HR interview. Was asked about my experience flying up to this point.  They gave me a scenario (view the study guide of this website).  After the HR I did the Sim. I did the a departure, then some vectors. He then fast forward to set me up for an ILS. flow it down to minimums, started the missed approach and then he paused and asked what I would do for the missed approach and how to enter the hold. After that the... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Oct 23, 2023 Technical interviews conducted over Zoom, they give you the plates they want to quiz you on days in advance, so study them. Read every single plate and understand everything about them. One of the VOR plates doesn't have a FAF marked by a Maltese cross. I was asked where the FAF is. I already knew the answer because I studied them and noticed this plate didn't have one marked. The interview started with an HR interview, conducted by Robyn who is the VP of HR. She was super friendly,... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Oct 23, 2023 Was called by HR to schedule the tech interview. The tech interview was not but 20 mins of ifr questions from the jepp charts that were provided. Then scheduled for in person interview at a local flight school a month later. The HR interview and sim were exactly the same as everyone else on here. I think they want to see if you can communicate like a normal person and that you can adapt to the sim to make the departure and approach work. They are not looking for perfection but definitely...

  6. Oct 23, 2023 Met pilot recruiter in person…. She got me in the door. Gate keepers will all say 1000 hours but they will absolutely take less… you just need to make the effort to meet and get to know someone internally. One quick interview; one instrument interview (advise you hire a cfii and feel comfortable with Jepp charts), another interview with HR, in person round Robin and sim: 2 approaches. One missed. One departure. Pretty straight... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Oct 23, 2023 It was like what everyone else said, the technical was done over teams, and she asked me about basic IFR questions and used Jeppesen charts. The HR interview went really quick, the biggest question I was asked is what would you do if the Captain kept on the approach if there was a aircraft on the runway. I said go around. But he continued on. I then said I would get bis attention by tapping him on the shoulder. The Sim was very easy, (view the Sim/Scenario section in the study guide of this...

  8. Sep 29, 2023 Only way I got a call was I went to Oshkosh specifically looking for a job and I talked to the recruiter from PS she said she would be in touch and she did contact me within 2 weeks of OSH. tech was like others. facilities are nice the sim guy was impersonal and the sim was a 6 pack panel. they treated us well and everyone was nice. I got an email saying I wasn't selected. 2 of the 9 of us got selected. Good... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Sep 14, 2023 Technical interview was only 10-15 minutes. You’re given 9 or so Jepp plates and the interviewer will choose a few to ask questions about. Ex: you’re cleared for an approach 40 miles out, when and to what altitude can you descend to; which symbol is a flyover and fly by waypoint. If you aren’t used to Jepp plates sit down with someone who knows them and go over each plate they sent you. In person interview consists of a presentation, HR, and sim eval. G1000 was broken so...

  10. Sep 13, 2023 The HR portion is to a (T) what other people in here said it was going to be. The only thing I would recommend is not needing to brief the full approach to get info. My recruiter did a fantastic job in the interview but the speed through me off big time. It was back to back questions about different things on different plates. All in all it took 15 minutes to brief a STAR-SID-LDA-LOC-VOR-ILS. Study hard and be able to pick out anything on a JEPP plate and know what it is. Lastly relax and...
